From STYLE Weekly: Looking back and looking ahead

By coincidence the STYLE Weekly has mentioned yours truly twice this week. One of the articles is about the past and the other is about the future.

The first link will take you to "Exile on Grace Street" by Rich Griset. It's a brief glance back to the days during which the hippies and then the punks ruled on Grace St. Those were also the days when I managed the Biograph Theatre.

By the way, in the comments below that piece, there's a list I've never seen before. It purports to have all Bruce Springsteen's live performances in Richmond in the late-1960s and early-'70s on it. As it was posted by VCU's Ray Bonis, it's probably accurate. 

The second link will take you to "Parrish leaving the James River Film Society" by Brent Baldwin. In telling how James Parrish has stepped down as co-honcho of the JRFS, it offers a smattering of information about the new movie theater project with which I am involved -- the Bijou Film Center.

If you're interested in more local pop culture nostalgia from the '70s and '80s, click on this link to look at Biograph Times.
